Ketosis Shift: 

The keto diet aims to trigger ketosis, where the body uses fat breakdown to produce ketones for energy instead of relying on glucose from carbohydrates.

Metabolic Change:

By reducing carb intake and increasing fat consumption, the body's metabolism shifts to burning stored fat for energy.

Weight Loss Mechanism:

Depleted glycogen stores and reduced blood sugar levels lead to fat breakdown into ketones, resulting in weight loss.

Appetite Control:

High-fat and moderate-protein meals on keto can suppress appetite, aiding in consuming fewer calories for weight loss.

Blood Sugar Stability:

Keto diet's carb restriction stabilizes blood sugar levels, reducing cravings for sugary foods and controlling overeating.

Thermogenesis Boost:

Fat metabolism for energy generates more heat than carbs, slightly increasing overall energy expenditure.

Fat Utilization:

 Keto diet promotes efficient fat utilization, contributing to a higher rate of fat oxidation and aiding weight loss.


Rapid initial weight loss, improved insulin sensitivity, and favorable lipid profiles are potential benefits of the keto diet.


 Nutrient deficiencies, keto flu during adaptation, sustainability challenges, and individual variability should be considered before adopting the keto diet.
